Translation of 1 Esdras
Whew! I've just finished my translation of 1 Esdras for the Common English Bible. I think the last two verses are quite memorable:
"Then they all went their way, to eat and drink and to rejoice, and to give portions to those who had none, and to make much merriment; because they were enthused by the words which they had been taught. And they came together" (9.54-55).
I wish every Sunday worship service was like that!
